Yvette Arthur - Body idols Muscle category
I'm 58 years older and a fitness fanatic Athlete and enjoy working with others to help them reach their goals.
From being a distance runner for over 30 years competing on track, road and cross country from 5 km to marathons with many successes as an individual and as part of a team. I started competing in bodybuilding at 55 years, as a result of deciding I needed a new challenge due to discovering I had arthritis in my lower spine, lower disc out of place and sciatica in my lower right side of my body due to all the pounding on the roads. It got to the stage I kept falling for no apparent reason and one whilst training with my club mates , fell and seriously hurt myself. I was advised to stop sporting activities but I'm a fighter I don't give up that easily and wanted to proof I could still do it.
I'm a Natural Pro and I have 3 Natural UK International titles and 3 Natural World titles along with multiple British and Regional Titles
My first year I competed in 11 Shows to which I placed 1st in 7 ( amateurs qualifierd & British Finals) and 3rd and 5 th in two World Championships) not bad for 55 years older lady (at the time)
I love to inspire others by showing that Competing can be a fun and healthy experience and to prove that its possible to compete well as a natural athlete.
I am a freelance personal Trainer and wanting to progress my business in order to help other athlets just starting out, giving advice and guidance. I'm constantly learning and experimenting with training.
